    Hi, can anyone help me share files and a printer between a vista laptop and a macbook pro with leopard on.

    The setup is as follows:

    Wireless Router connected to internet via ethernet cable/modem.
    MacBook Pro and Vaio connected wirelessly to router.
    Dell printer connected to Vaio via USB.

    If anyone can point me in the direction of a setup guide or even talk me through it it would be much appreciated.

    right i've managed to sort the sharing files problem out - norton was getting in the way on the vaio.

    Anyone know how I can get the printer working? I've got as far as selecting a driver for it and then become stuck. The printer is a Dell A920 - i'm aware that dell doesn't support mac but i'm sure i've heard that dell don't make the printer, its made by another company (maybe lexmark??) and dell slap their badge on it. Can anyone clarify this and help me in choosing a driver?

    don't have the vaio in front of me now but of the top of my head you go into settings and add the ip address of you mac as a trusted computer in the firewall bit. if you need me to find out exactly give me a shout
